God Recycles Our Pain

Meet Shirley Thiessen

Nearly 6 years ago, Shirley and her husband Carey experienced a parent’s worst nightmare: the death of a child. Only 12 days after celebrating her son’s wedding, Shirley had the devastating task of planning her son Jordan’s funeral. 

While absorbing the horrendous nightmare of her son’s death, Shirley states, “One truth which has been imprinted on my heart as a result of my history with God, is this: Jesus is my foundation, my purpose and my living hope.” While my husband and my kids are at the epicentre of the people I love most dearly, they are not my only reason for living. They are not the ultimate source of my joy. Only God holds that spot.Shirley works as Major Gifts Manager at the Mustard Seed, and thanks God for the opportunity she has to come alongside her clients who are suffering from profound grief and loss.

The Power of Prayer & A Father’s Heart!

Do you find it hard to trust? Maybe wonder if God even hears your prayers? I know we aren’t shocked by the questions we have for God, or how weak we sometimes feel in our request, but what about spending some time sharing stories about the times HE DOES answer? What about sharing stories of miracles and the power of prayer? Would that encourage you today?
